Party Pretzels

It's Monday and unlike some, I love Mondays as they mean getting things back on track with the kids & the house and getting much accomplished, hopefully:)

As usual, we had a busy weekend and one of the activities included hosting a birthday party for Leyla, celebrating 16 years of her precious life.  It was executed in a bit of a whirl but I did manage to dip some pretzels to add to the table of goodies.

Dipped pretzels are such a fun & easy treat and have become a favorite of Livy's, my pretzel queen:)

To accomplish, simply choose your favorite brand of pretzel rods (Snyder's for us) and dip in melted chocolate- I melt chocolate chips in a handy dandy 'double boiler' aka heat proof bowl set over a saucepan with an inch of simmering water.

Once the chocolate has completely melted and is smooth, dip away and roll in your favorite edible party decor- we've used sugar stars, nonpareils, colored sugar and mini chocolate chips:)  *TIP: use white chocolate for colored sugar!

Livy enjoys smelling her food to ensure it's not poisonous... (sigh)

One nibble to start things off...

And thumbs up for a great treat!  Olivia & I would love to have you try these too- they're sure to be a grand success:)

Making your day a little sweeter,

  1. The party was great fun! And I, too, love Monday's:) We usually have very busy weekends culminating with Sunday worship and family time. It's good to get back to the basics on Monday. Love it!
